I have no idea if this works or doesn't. Having said that, all I could think about when watching this video is that there should have been a hard stop system and mechanical release for his robot. The skeptic in me kept thinking there was a possibility that the guy doesn't pull it back as far when he has the non-pro-core putter and hitting it off the toe. (Human nature, you want something to be true so your subconscious makes it true even if your conscious is telling you to try to be fair.) 

Similarly, I would have liked a controlled surface. The putts being off line could be the result of them losing speed and falling downward, when if they had more speed they would have held the line better. 

Again, I don't know if this device works or not. I'm just saying if they wanted me to be convinced there were definitely some ways to improve their "test".

Absolute bollocks.  If that were true we would have to tune our bags.  How successful is that likely to be?

That's new to me.   I've not seen or heard of anything like that.  

There used to be a company that made inserts for driver shafts that was supposed to work like this. I can’t find the link or recall the name. There is also Sensicore, which is a foam that is filled into metal shafts to dampen impact vibration. But drivers and irons are moving very fast compared to putters. I don't think this would be very useful with respect to the claims it makes. The head design would be more important to improve MOI.

FWIW, I recent increased the overall weight of an older Cameron putter I had by adding tungsten power into the shaft and a cork plug to hold it in place. Then I put a counter-core Super Sroke grip on it. It increased the putter weight by 80 grams. Increased weight may play just as important a factor as their claim about shaft vibration.

That was a pretty common practice with putters back in the late 80's early 90's. The only difference is we used lead powder not tungsten, and we use to put a glob or two of lead tape on the perimeter of the putter head as well.

I believe Harrison was the company

Huh?

It worked pretty well for a number of people IIRC. I seem to recall a few tests being done, but it was awhile ago, and for all I know shaft technology has advanced since then.

    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
    • Really appreciate your input, I’m not going to add more than 1.5 inches as per info I’ve read and seen on some videos such as Mcgolf. It’s for my brother and the reason I’m leaning towards keeping the ping shafts is the flex suits him, I just don’t know if the butt extension is going to make the shaft stronger or not. Was hoping someone had done it before, guess I do it and see what happens. Cheers 
    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction.
